Timeouts In Blocking Socket Code

I was wondering how to handle timeouts correctly while blocked for I/O on sockets, with as few system calls as possible.

Thanks to slamb for reminding me of SO_SNDTIMEO/SO_RCVTIMEO! Combined with recv() letting me do short reads, I think I've got what I need for something completely portable.
